Sony VPL-VW5000ES Whitepaper: Chapter 1

Chapter 1 of Sony’s extensive white paper about the VPL-VW5000ES projector is all about SXRD (Silicon X-tal [crystal] Reflective Display) microdisplay technology. Take a deep dive into the issue of inter-pixel gaps, which can give rise to the so-called “screen-door effect” and lower overall brightness if the gaps are large. SXRD pixels are separated by very narrow gaps, resulting in higher brightness and pixel density than transmissive LCD projection. Also, an improved type of LCD material in the SXRD structure achieves much lower black levels and thus higher contrast.
